Hello. My name is Scott Francis. I’m an editor for F+W Media, a content & e-commerce company. These days most of my work is for Popular Woodworking, but I’ve also edited for the HOW and Writer’s Digest brands.  I’m also the author of Monster Spotter’s Guide to North America, co-author of The Writer’s Book of Matches, and a founding editor of Fresh Boiled Peanuts: A Literary Journal.

This blog is an attempt to document my experiences as I work on writing/editing projects and share things I learn with other writers and artists.

Here are some samples of projects I’ve worked on.
